Freshwater Ecology

Our aquatic science department includes an experienced team of freshwater ecologists with specialist skills in the survey, assessment and remediation of freshwater habitats.  Our key areas of expertise include:

  • Rivers, lakes and estuaries
  • Aquatic plants
  • Aquatic invertebrates
  • Diatoms and phytoplankton
  • Fisheries
  • Invasive species control

The expertise of our freshwater team is recognised through their regular contracts with the statutory authorities.  They also provide a pragmatic and robust approach to development related projects including survey and impact assessments for hydro-schemes, abstraction licensing, review of consents, as well as undertaking biological and ecological water quality monitoring for a wide range of commercial clients.

Our Sheffield office includes a laboratory that undertakes analysis for biological monitoring, with trained and experienced technicians specialising in the identification and analysis of aquatic invertebrate, diatom and phytoplankton samples.
